AN INN in Sedbergh is gearing up to host its very own Oktoberfest for the first time.

The team at The Black Bull, Sedbergh has decided to push the boat out this year and celebrate the annual event in style with folk music, beer, and food at The Stables and The Meadow.

The one-day event will take place on Saturday, October 30, with proceedings getting underway at 12 noon with music throughout the day provided by a selection of Cumbrian folk bands including the Moonshine Shakers.

There will also be a selection of craft beers available from The Stables outdoor bar served up to the thirty socially distanced tables arranged 'bierkeller style' under pergolas in The Meadow.

As well as an extensive selection of guest beers, the team will also be serving up their famous sourdough pizzas and sides.
